Why go on a Central America cruise?
Central America is a region with a rich cultural heritage and history dating back for centuries – you will have the opportunity to visit some of the best tourist destinations in this fascinating region.
Central America is bordered by the beautiful Caribbean Sea to the East, the North Pacific Ocean to the West, and Mexico to the North. The region has a population of nearly 42 million people.
Central America traditionally consists of Costa Rica, Belize, Guatemala, Panama, El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua. Some cruises also include stops in Mexico and even San Diego, California.
The entire Central America region is diverse – like no other place on Earth! With spectacular wildlife, vibrant cultures and not to mention the breathtaking scenery, there is something for everyone here. You can experience the tranquility of the clear seas and white sands or the dramatic jungles, or for a more fast-paced contrast be sure to visit the many towns and cities which are alive with an atmosphere you will not find anywhere else on Earth.
There is so much to take in on a Central America cruise. Visit the lush green rainforests and volcanoes of Costa Rica, as well as the modern capital San Jose situated high up in the mountains. Explore Manta, Ecuador, with a picturesque Old Town so perfectly preserved that the whole region has been named as a World Heritage Site. In Cuzco catch a train through the Urubamba Valley or Sacred Valley of the Incas to marvel at the mountaintop ruins of Machu Picchu – a land never discovered by the Spaniards, which for centuries lay buried in the jungle until being found in 1911.
Activities to suit all ages include superb opportunities for diving, water sports, marine and wildlife attractions, and remarkable cultural and historical sights which will truly make your cruise the trip of a lifetime.
